Description:This right-lateral chest x-ray revealed evidence of a pulmonic infection 13 days after this patient had been exposed to the bacillus, Bacillus anthracis, the cause of the disease known as anthrax.

All types of anthrax can be prevented and treated with antibiotics. There is a vaccine licensed to prevent anthrax, but it is only recommended for routine use in certain groups of at-risk adults. If someone has symptoms of anthrax, it’s important to get medical care as quickly as possible to have the best chances of a full recovery.
